ESO Stroke Guidelines

About Guidelines

Guidelines aim to present all the relevant evidence on a particular clinical issue in order to help physicians to weigh the benefits and risks of a particular diagnostic or therapeutic procedure. Guidelines are helpful in everyday clinical medical decision-making.

For easy reference, ESO maintains an open directory of all published guidelines related to stroke. These stroke guidelines are freely available to physicians, allied health professionals, stroke patients and lay persons. The ESO also maintains the stroke pocket guidelines app for easy access to new guidelines.

ESO Pocket Guidelines App

In order to make accessing guidelines more convenient, the ESO, supported by its sponsors, developed the ESO Guideline application. The ESO Guidelines app delivers the latest ESO Stroke Guidelines, plus interactive tools (algorithms, calculators, charts, scores…) in your pocket.

Look for “ESO Guidelines” in iTunes and Google Play stores.

The app launched in spring 2016 and features the following guidelines and their related interactive tools:

  • European Stroke Organisation (ESO) guidelines for the management of temperature in patients with acute ischemic stroke
  • European Stroke Organisation (ESO) Guidelines for Prophylaxis for Venous thromboembolism in immobile patients with acute ischaemic stroke
  • Recommendations from the ESO-Karolinska Stroke Update Conference, Stockholm, 13-15 November 2016
  • Barthel Index, GCS, GOE SOR, mRS, NIHSS,

More guidelines will be added shortly!

The ESO Guidelines App is supported by AstraZeneca, Bayer Pharma AG and Daiichi Sankyo Europe GmbH with an unrestricted educational grant. These sponsors were not involved in any way, directly or indirectly, in the development of the scientific content.
